3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized creamy light tan head. Good head retention and nice sheets of lacing. Really a nice looking beer. The aroma is herbal and peppery hops with pale malts. The taste is herbal hops, caramel, faint fruitiness and a bitter finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation and a slight lingering bitterness. Nice.

Well well well.....on tap at the local steak house. Served in an NON icy glass...the world must be ending. medium piney nose. Hop bite is flower in body and soft. A lovely deep amber in the glass. A solid IPA which is neither in your face with hops or a watery excuse for an IPA. I had two. Alcohol sneaks up on you in the parking lot.

Pours a light amber with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma is sweet citrus hops. Taste is slightly bitter but not overly hopped. Good easy drinking IPA with a serious ABV. Good stuff.

Copper color. Lots of pine in the nose. A hint of gin. First taste is balanced, but a little too bitter. Good finish. A bit thin. Overall a good beer.

Bought this on a whim and am pretty happy with the purchase. For the price, I wasnít expecting much, but this is a really solid IPA. Tastes fresh with all the usual "notes" that everyone else has already gone into. Pretty poundable, even with itís 7.3% abv. I could go back to this one and probably will as itís tasty and respectably priced for what youíre getting.

Bottle into a pint glass. Deep orange almost red color with a big white head and nice lacing. Candy orange aroma. Flavor is full bodied and pretty sweet. Reminds me of those orange slice candies. Finish has a touch of grapefruit and leaves you with a long lasting sweetness. Little bit of pine bitterness working in background as well.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, caramel malts, and a little spiciness. Flavor the same, with enough hops to make me feel like itís an IPA. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gold, not much in the way of hop aroma, some citrus and pine with malt presence in the aroma. Medium bodied, full malt and hop palate, bitter with no distinguishable hop varietal. Kind of muted all around. Finish is hoppy and full w/ lasting bitterness. A straight forward IPA with out a lot of complexity. Worth the $8.99 price tag if you need to get you hop fix.
Available at Hops & Vines, Asheville, NC.

Total Wine, Fairfax 355ml ($2): Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is floral, malty, honeyish, with some sharper hops in there as well. Taste is a little sweet. Good astringent hops from the middle to the end. Mellow mouthfeel. Slightly lingering aftertaste. High alcohol superbly covered. Well-balanced. I was expecting something good with this, but this fortunately exceeded my expectations.
